What types of customers have you worked with?
Each and every client and job is unique. The Green Room Interiors has been involved in everything from paint color consultations to completely making over a space from the rug to the chandelier (and everything in between). We strive to tailor each job to the clients needs - whether it's just offering some creative suggestions in a consultation or updating a home with new accessories and art.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I think pictures are worth a thousand words. Visit the potential designer's websites and/or ask to see their portfolio. Do the spaces they have designed reveal anything about the person living there, or do they just look like an assemblage of coordinating furniture pieces? Even though the rooms you see may not reflect your own style, pay attention to how the rooms feel. So many details go into a well designed space (such as the effective use of scale, balance, repetition,color and pattern) but in the end it's really about the big picture, and how effectively the client's personality is reflected.
I also recommend that clients get referrals from the designer's current or former clients. Ask them how their experience was working with a particular decorator, and whether or not they would recommend that decorator!
